Work is for the "Birds"?

While at work yesterday I checked out the sighting of Black Crested Night Herons along our stream.  The three in the tree weren't easy to spot but the one sleeping in a small tree on the bank is in the picture below - just look for the white (center, far side of stream)- my phone doesn't zoom.  I also included a picture from the internet.  These birds are 22 - 26 inches in height and have a wingspan of 45 inches!  They're nesting in the trees and I hope to see their babies when hatched.


Also, about two weeks ago we had Wild Turkeys taking a walk around the plant.  They seem to stop by every year or so.  In addition we have Mallards and Canada Geese nest every year.
